A collection of papers presented at the Ontario Federation of Labour Conference on Education and Training in 1989, stressing the labour movement's continuing commitment to quality, free public education.
The intention of the Conference and the tone of the papers is suggested by Gord Wilson's Preface: "We want education and training that encourages critical thinking, not uncritical compliance with authority. We want education that is oriented to the life-long needs of people, not the immediate economic desires of employers. Our educational system's goal must not be the mirage of equality of opportunity. We want equality of results in which all people will be better able to live fulfilling and meaningful lives at home, in the community and at work."
The essays in It's Our Own Knowledge decry undue corporate influence in the education system, advocating schools that prepare future workers to live full and rewarding lives.
An Our Schools/Our Selves book.
